Summer’s finally here!
The time I wait for all year!
Its been a long day
First day of Summer is the longest day of the year and at noon on this day your shadow is at its shortest.
Long day- Short shadow- Summer’s something to celebrate I think! 😃

We count our life in years,
But what about the days?
All the seconds of life?
Cherish all the minutes.
It’s in those moments,
Memories are made,
Chances are taken,
Changes often happen.
Treasure every breath.
Celebrate each day.
Give thanks for your life.
My grand-daughter messaged me today to tell me I have lived 27,365 days so far! Where did all those days go?
It seems a lot longer when you view your life as days rather than years!
It’s pretty amazing to think about, and so inspired the thoughts for this poem.
I didn’t celebrate
I didn’t create
A Gingerbread House
Today was Gingerbread House Day. In times past I have made many Gingerbread Houses but not today.
I did enjoy having a Toasted Marshmallow Peppermint Mocha at Black Rock Coffee while I thought about them though 😊
Did you make one today or have you ever made one?
National Creamsicle Day
Tonite we had the most beautiful sunset in different shades and layers of orange, peach and cream colors. The camera on my phone just didn’t capture the colors exactly as I saw them because as I looked at it I thought of a Creamsicle which I have always loved to eat!
A quick Google search told me that National Creamsicle Day was on August 14th which was two days ago, but the sky was cloudy then and there wasn’t a sunset, so I guess God decided to celebrate it late and gave us this creamsicle sky tonight! 😊
Celebrating a Queen!
I honor her, plus the two
Victorias in my life!
